Oral History Collection

MOCA conducted approximately 350 interviews that make up its 7 oral history collections: 1. Archeology of Change: Mapping Tales of Gentrification in New York City’s Chinatown; 2. The Chino-Latino Project; 3. Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance; 4. Many Voices, One Humanity; 5. 8th Avenue - Sunset Park Oral History Collection; 6. 9/11 Chinatown Documentation Project; 7. Miscellaneous Oral History Collection. These interviews were conducted between 1980 and 2013, documenting memories and narratives related to the Chinese American experience. These interviews were digitized and transcribed from various formats but primarily from cassette tapes found and stored on-site at MOCA’s Collections & Research Center.
